  3. Add shrimp, pork and water chestnuts and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Prepare the broth: Chop the scallions and bok choy. Thinly slice the carrot and snow peas. Mince the garlic.
  5. Combine stock, scallions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and carrot in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

This is a great recipe. I changed the shrimp with ground chicken because that's all I have but it still turn out great. I also didn't put grated ginger and water chestnut because I run out of them. The other changed that i did intentionally was to put 2 egg whites instead of three.For sure I will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing.
